in order to arrange the plates in the height we take a piece of flat and
haul of a rectangle in the corner
we weld them vertically on the plate 90 ° in relation to the weld at the
lower plate and strike a wedge between top plate and vertical plate
welded (in the gutted rectangle) and arrange it so very easy.
thanks for the effort and great documentation
With the wind being an issue, why not just use SMAW? It wouldn’t give you
the nicest looking welds around but it would certainly do the trick as far
as penetration goes.
I, too, dream of constructing my own boat someday. I wish to sail it across
the world. Thank you for the videos :)
Toward the beginning of the video you show prying the plate up with screw
drivers to get it tight to the angle stiffner. A lil trick I use is if you
have an old C clamp you can cut the top finger off of it so you can then
tack it to plate near the angle do you can screw it against the angle to
lift the plate tight.
Newport news shipyard uses a ‘dog” and wedge to fair up plate edges. The
dog is a 1/4 thick rectangular plate about 2 x 4 inches with one corner cut
out to form an L-shaped dog where the wedge will slide under. You tack weld
the back side edge to the low plate with the L-shaped end overhanging the
high plate and use the wedge lift the low plate until it’s flush. The top
flat edge (4 inch side) of another dog works great for sliding it across
the butt to ensure it’s flush. When done,knock them off with a hammer and
Nice technic .You must be a tough cooking man.
hey good for you. i like it when people follow there dreams, and at least
give it a go. mate u have a ton of welding to do, maybe flux core is the
go. is there any warp-age after welding? i am a boilermaker, sometimes when
we flush align plates we use a “dog and wedge” but its quicker to weld to
the side of the dog, a 5/8 nut .and use the bolt for height adjustment,
instead of the wedge.
Sorry. My name is Doug. Noah built wooden boats. Good Luck. 🙂
please don’t die of lung cancer!
Thanks amigo. Those are good words to live by.
Life is about doing what makes you happy. I find it really odd that some
people feel the need to try and shoot down other peoples ideas and dreams.
Go for it and enjoy what you do. Glad to see that the detractors don’t
Understandable. I will go check it out. Thx.
I applaud your belief in the possible. I recall decades ago a family who
built a concrete sailing vessel in northern Illinois. They were chided,
laughed at, but it all changed when they put the hull upright and began
outfitting the interior. I’ll watch for you as you pass by the North
Carolina coastline. Joe
cool! Thx for the quick reply. Do you guys have a dxf of the final boat you
would mind sharing? I would like to make a mini version for the kids (3
feet long probably)
Do you use mig or stick for the final welds?
lol,they all went out of business because it was too slow.
That’s a great idea. There is a free sample on our web site for a single
chine hull. Go to: SVSeeker (dot) com, under Sailboat / Origami Hull. Sorry
I can’t give out the lines for our hull. Jack Carson drew those and when
you buy something like that you only buy the permission to use them for
Very Nice…. If your name is Noah, I m subscribing..
So is this something you work on during the weekends? What do you do for
full time work? Just curious. Very cool project.
My son in a some of the videos. He has his own web site: InfidelStrong
Did’nt know that. And he did it without GPS or a weather FAX. Actually my
neighbors are all laborers and they don’t seem to doubt it at all. The
folks in my corporate office are another matter. I don’t think they believe
anything can be done without a project planner and contracted consultants.
LOL. Thanks Keith. Kay and I when to a marriage counselor before we got
married and the advice was DONT! That was the best advice I ever ignored. 🙂
The 30 pounds will be there somewhere (looks good) between the bow and
I MIG almost everything. The only time I use stick is when I need move
around a lot, or just do a few short welds. It’s especially handy when I
need to add something to the top of the gantry crane. Basically, I suck at
stick, but mostly because I rarely use it. And I hate changing the stick
all the time. MIG rocks for high productivity.
